FP*****.tmp files self replicating

  jaybon 13:37 01 Feb 2007

Files are being created with the Windows\Temp file.

All are named FP*****.tmp [ where **** are alpha Numeric]

F -Prot anti virus detects them and removes a few and quarantines most.

But they are constantly being created and this is progessively slowing the system.

There are thousands and they cannot be deleted.

The system runs on XP

All advice welcome
